Las Vegas Review-Journal Selects NetScreen To Stop Network Intrusions
Sunnyvale, CA - January 6, 2003 - NetScreen Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: NSCN) today announced that the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the largest daily newspaper serving Nevada, has selected NetScreen's intrusion detection and prevention solution to protect its network from malicious attacks.
As the Las Vegas Review-Journal expanded its network to include more than 40 host web sites, the number and severity of attacks also increased, causing network downtime and decreased business productivity across the organization. Addressing attacks and repairing damage to critical resources began to consume IT staff time, adversely affecting critical projects.
To address these issues, the Las Vegas Review-Journal selected the NetScreen-IDP 100, the first product designed to accurately detect and stop intrusions in real-time by performing in-line data scanning and leveraging multi-method attack detection capabilities as well as unique management features for quick response to new threats.
"Our most popular site alone receives thousands of port scans, IP spoofs and denial-of-service attacks daily," said Steven Olson, support services manager, Las Vegas Review-Journal. "More advanced than traditional intrusion detection solutions, NetScreen IDP addresses the productivity and network downtime problems associated with responding to those attacks because it has the ability to detect and drop malicious traffic in-line, stopping it from entering the network without temporarily shutting down service or blocking the IP addresses of legitimate site users. This saves our IT staff significant time and increases network uptime and productivity company-wide."
"Many enterprises are recognizing that just detecting attacks is not enough," said David Flynn, vice president of marketing at NetScreen. "The Las Vegas Review-Journal's selection of NetScreen IDP demonstrates the value of intrusion detection and prevention devices, which can reduce network downtime, decrease the costs associated with restoring critical resources and ward off attacks."
